Chorshanbe’s 2,000 inhabitants have long suffered from the absence of a medical centre in their village. Funding was secured in 2015 to build Health House, which meets all modern regulatory requirements. The single-storey building contains four treatment rooms and a toilet. Walls and partitions are in baked brick. The roof structure is timber, covered in galvanised corrugated sheets, and with hanging Armstrong ceilings. Window and door frames are metal. Outside are a further toilet, summer shed with benches, water tower with 4-cubic-metre tank, and 30-cubic-metre concrete fire-fighting pond. Water is supplied from a 45-metre-deep artesian well. Green landscaping is automatically irrigated by spray-taps. A decorative metal grille encloses the site to the front, with separate entrances for pedestrians and vehicles.
